The police, who investigated the case of brutally abusing and killing 10 poodles, determined that the motive of the 40-year-old suspect was ‘a family dispute caused by a poodle that was raised at home’.
The Jeonbuk National Police Agency said today (7th), “A (41), a conflict caused by the poodle he was raising with his wife, seems to have led to abuse of the adopted poodle.” .
From March to October of last year, the police have been investigating Mr. A on the charge of adopting 21 poodles from all over the country and abusing and killing 13 poodles (violation of the Animal Protection Act).
Person A was found to have killed the poodle in a brutal way, such as forcing it to drink water to make it breathless or hitting it with a blunt weapon, and then buried it in an apartment flower bed.
Of the 21 adopted poodles, two were abandoned because they were not a preferred breed, and one returned to the owner’s house during the adoption process.
The police mobilized search dogs to secure poodle bodies from the suspect’s residence and apartment flower beds.
A police official said, “It is suspected that a total of 18 animals were murdered, but five of them were excluded from the charges because it was difficult to find concrete evidence of the crime.”
